Let's Take Back the Night  A woman walks alone down a dark, deserted street. With every shadow she sees and every sound she hears, her pounding heart flutters and skips a beat. She hurries her pace as she sees her destination become closer. She is almost there. She reaches the front door, goes inside, collects herself, and moves on, forgetting, at least for tonight, the gripping fear that momentarily enveloped her life. Sound familiar? Most women will recognize that flutter in the pit of the stomach when walking in a parking garage or parking lot. This scene could have occurred anywhere last night, last year, or even 100 years ago. Approximately 1 in 6 women in the United States has experienced stalking at some point in her lifetime in which she felt very fearful or believed that she or...

Great Things Happen in Skook My Dad and his family come from Pottsville, PA.  And since Mom had no siblings and her parents died before I even entered kindergarten, our family trips were always to Pottsville to see grandma, uncles, aunts and cousins.  And one of the first blogs I subscribed to here on Active Rain was Erica Ramus.  She's a Broker/Owner in Pottsville, PA.  Reading her blog makes me feel like I am always in touch with the family I have in Pottsville. Well, when the opportunity presented itself to take a day trip to Pottsville with my cousin Patti, who now resides in New Mexico, I was in!  The purpose of the trip was to buy hot bologna, but if you follow Erica's blog, you already know that.  Turns out, we really didn't need to drive up to buy it.  Erica posted the recipe on...
